State of California, 
Department of the State Library,

To kia Excellency, James N. Gillett, 

Governor of California. 

Sir: We have the honor to submit the Biennial Report of the State 
Librarian for the two years ending June 30, 1908. 
By order of the State Board of Library Trustees.

REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



To the Honorable Board of Library Trustees of the California State 
Library — 

Gentlemen: I have the honor of submitting my report covering the 
transactions of the State Library for the fifty-eighth and fifty-ninth 



fiscal years, ending June 30, 1908. 

Balance on hand July 1, 1906 '. $8,285 26 

Amount received during fifty-eighth and fifty-ninth fiscal years 82.131 40 

• Total...- J $90,416 66 

Expenditures during fifty-eighth and fifty-ninth fiscal years 84,070 50 

Balance June 30, 1908 --- $6,346 16 



A detailed financial statement is appended (Appendices A and B), 
showing debits and credits for each fiscal year, also total expenditures 
for the two fiscal years (Appendix C). 

On March 18, 1907, the act of the Legislature increasing the income 
of the Library from $3,000 to $3,500 per month was approved. 

BOOKS. 

For a detailed statement of the number of books added to the Library, 
see Appendix D. The unusual expenses incident to moving and storing 
and bringing back the Library to the Capitol explain why the books 
added to the collection during this biennial period are so few. 

[OUT OF THE CAPITOL. 

During the whole of the two fiscal years ending June 30, 1908, the 
activities of the Library have been greatly hindered by having to move 
out of the Capitol, and by the great-amount of extra work required in 
moving back again. It was impossible in the cramped quarters at 
Maple Hall to serve the public, except through the extension depart- 
ment. Consequently the staff devoted itself to such improvements of 
the various library tools as would make the collection more effective 
when the doors should again be thrown open to the reading public.

REPORT OF" THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



NEW t|lAHTERS. 

The new quarters in the Capitol are not ideal, but the one thing 
imperatively needed is supplied; that is, greater space. The fact, how- 
ever, that the Library rooms extend from basement to fourth floor 
and from one end to the other of the top floor makes ready supervision 
and quick service almost impossible. A private elevator would have 
aided greatly in getting books to the reading room : this defect may be 
partially remedied by the installation of a book lift. Owing to the low- 
ness of the ceiling and the absence of a large air chamber above, the 
fourth floor rooms are unusually warm in summer. However, while as 
yet all available shelf room has been utilized, it is evident that for 
the next few years the Library will have adequate stack space for the 
books. 

CATALOG DEPARTMENT. 

The work of this department has gone along the lines indicated in 
the preceding report. The books on continental history and travel 
have been recataloged ; and work has been continued on the books 
listed in the old card catalog which, it is hoped, may soon be done away 
with. The volumes currently received have been cataloged. The most 
satisfactory piece of work done by the department has been the recata- 
loging of the . law collection. The text-books, reports, and digests are 
practically finished, and work will be begun on the statutes as soon as 
possible. Owing to the fact that in times past many different hands 
have been employed in listing the law books, its catalog was full of 
errors and omissions. The new one, worked out in the light of what has 
been done in the better law libraries of the country, is believed to be a 
very satisfactory catalog. As in times past Library of Congress printed 
cards have been used whenever obtainable. 

The work of the catalog department has been interfered with by the 
resignation in two instances of the assistant cataloger and the interim 
which seemed unavoidable between the leaving of one and the coming 
of her successor. A second assistant would be a'valuable addition to 
the staff. 

REFERENCE AND LOAN DEPARTMENT. 

The work ,of this department had scarcely begun when it was sus- 
pended on account of the removal from the Capitol; but enough was 
done to indicate the value of such an undertaking to the residents of 
the State. Many lists and bibliographies have been collected, and an 
adequate reference library will be brought together on the shelves of 
the reading room. The disastrous results of the earthquake and fire of 
April, 1906, make the needs of such work all the more evident. Dur- 



REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN.

ing the time that the Library has been closed repeated requests for 
books have come from various places in the State, showing that the 
State Library is looked upon as the source from which information may 
be drawn, and from which may be borrowed the many books which 
smaller libraries may not hope to acquire. 

PERIODICAL DEPARTMENT. 

For a list of the current periodicals received see Appendices E, F, 
and G. 

LAW DEPARTMENT. 

Fortunately the Law collection was not greatly disturbed by the 
repairs of the Capitol; some of the older text-books and little used 
reports and statutes had to be packed away, but the quarters were not 
vacated. The demand for law books, and especially the court records, 
continues to increase. 

The shelf room of this department is practically filled, and little 
additional space which is conveniently near is to be had. Shelves are 
being placed in small rooms each side of the main entrance, but these 
.will not long furnish enough space to provide for the usual increase. 

SOCIOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT. 

Relations have become established between this department and 
those of a similar character elsewhere, so that the amount of valuable 
material coming in by way of exchange is large. Indexes, notes and 
clippings are constantly being prepared, making quickly available the 
mass of information which we have on current questions of interest. 
The demands upon the department by State officers and others are 
rapidly increasing. A room, connecting with the Law Library, giving 
much needed space for arranging this growing mass of material will 
greatly aid in getting at information desired. 

CALIFORNIA HISTORICAL DEPARTMENT. 

The work of this department is becoming so widely known over the 
State that scarcely a day passes without the receipt of some valuable 
book, picture, or other article which throws light on early California 
history. Account books, broadsides, photographs, and such things, 
which have long been gathering dust in the attics of pioneer homes, are 
gradually coming to light; and the owners with commendable regard 
for the worth of the material to the historian are sending their treas- 
ures to the State Library. 



10 



REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



Cards have been sent out widely asking for information about the 
pioneers, authors, musicians, and artists of the State. And not only are 
the cards coming back in gratifying numbers, but often with them we 
receive photographs, manuscripts, music scores, and autograph copies 
of books. 

Work is continued on the newspaper index which day by day proves 
itself of great value when it points instantly to articles and write-ups 
which otherwise would be sought for laboriously by turning through 
the bound files. 

EXTENSION DEPARTMENT. 

Traveling Libraries Division. 

There are now 401 communities in California that have formed library 
associations and have the privilege of borrowing State traveling libra- 
ries. It has been found that the success of the undertaking depends 
largely on securing the right person to take charge of a collection. The 
demand, however, has been as great as could be cared for under exist- 
ing conditions. Many of the books have now been in use over four 
years and are beginning to be badly worn. So much repair work has 
been necessary that extra help has been employed on occasion in order 
that the libraries might be sent out promptly. In getting book- to 
replace those no longer in usable condition effort is being made to secure 
volumes in more serviceable bindings. 

County Library System. 

The growth of the county library extension plan promises to relieve 
in some degree the demand on the State Library for traveling libraries. 
The county rather than the town as a unit of library activity I believe 
to be the one on which this branch of our popular educational system 
will be made effective, for the reason mainly that the county can give 
better financial support. The fact that under the county system the 
custodian of each deposit station will receive some remuneration for his 
services will go far toward securing persons of capability to do the 
work. The distance of the deposit stations from the center of distribu- 
tion being shorter than in the State system, the books can be exchanged 
more frequently with less wear, less loss of time and less expense. 
Better supervision from the headquarters of distribution will be possi- 
ble, and the borrowers from the deposit stations may more frequently 
visit the main collection for consultation and selection. It is not prob- 
able, however, that the county extension plan will entirely supersede 
the State traveling library system; but it will enable the State Library 
to send its collections of books to the outlying and sparsely settled 
districts. 

I am watching with interest the working out of the plan in Sacra* 



REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN.

mento County, which is the first county in California to give adequate 
support to the undertaking. During the July, 1908, session of the 
Board of Supervisors the sum of $3,500 was appropriated to start the 
work. The Sacramento (city) Public^ Library, which is excellently 
organized and has a well-selected collection of about 40,000 volumes, is 
the head of the system. Every resident of the county is eligible to 
borrow books from either the deposit stations or the main Library, with 
every privilege now accorded the city residents. To begin with, 
twenty deposit stations will be established throughout the county, and 
later others, as the demand increases. Each collection will consist of 
fifty books selected from the present and future stock of the Library, 
and will include both new and used books. The composition of the 
deposit collections will be changed from time to time as may seem best. 
Weekly shipments of books called for at deposit stations, but not 
found in deposit collections, will be made. So far as is possible each 
deposit station will be a branch library, and every effort will be made to 
put into the hands of the county reader the books that he desires. En 
some degree, at least, I think the Sacramento County system may be 
taken as a model by which other counties may profit. 

Study Club Division. 

During this biennial period nothing has been attempted in this 
division. When the main collection of the Library is again opened to 
the public, however, this work will again be taken up. 

Public Libraries Division. 

The work of this division is largely done by the two organizers, 
whose aid is in constant demand, advising the authorities of towns 
expecting to establish public libraries and assisting librarians and 
attendants in those libraries already established. This help to the 
libraries in smaller towns where trained librarians may not be hoped 
for yet awhile is of greatest value. 

The division is getting together a fine reference collection on all sub- . 
jects of library economy. Plans and views of new buildings con- 
veniently arranged for consultation will often mean a successful library 
to a community which without this means of knowing what has been 
done would fall into the error« so often made by designers of such 
structures. 

Nothing that is being done by this division seems to be more pop- 
ular than the library institutes. Those attending not only receive 
instruction in the best methods of doing their work, but they also come 
in contact with their fellow workers and are given an opportunity to 
compare ideas and to get new suggestions. 

Thirty libraries have been organized since this division was established. 



12 



REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



I Ionics for thr lll'nid Division. 

There are now 2S7 blind borrowers, scattered all the way from Sis- 
kiyou County to San Diego. The total accessions number 775 volumes, 
in the four types: New York Point, American Braille, Moon, and Boston 
Line Letter. The demand for books is steadily increasing, and the 
blirtd express great satisfaction in having all the books they want for 
study and recreation. 



PRESENT NEEDS OF THE LIBRARY. 

The facts set forth under the heading "Future Needs of the Library" 
in the preceding biennial report may well be read over again. At that 
time the income of the Library was insufficient; at the present time it 
is far more so. The surplus which had accumulated in the Treasury 
is gone; the demands upon us have become increasingly great. If the 
California State Library is to maintain the position which it now 
occupies as one of the active, working libraries of this country, its 
financial support must be more liberal. There is not a department of 
this institution that does not urgently need additional assistants. And 
on the present income it is impossible to buy the books which we are 
expected to have on the shelves. It is hoped that an income more 
nearly sufficient to our needs may be secured; and when I see the great 
service which the State Library is doing the people of California. 1 
am convinced that the legislators will not overlook our needs. 

For the sake of comparison the following table which appeared in 
the preceding report has been brought as nearly up to date as possible:
